Learners take on the TOM Virtual Challenge to upgrade their school's sports ground!

Personal message

Tafelsig Primary school is a no-fee school due to the high rate of unemployment. Parents could not afford the school fees, therefore learners get all their stationery, textbooks, and notebooks from the school. The school also has a number of learners who depend on the school for their meal of the day.

The school's academic record is very low but the learners enjoy participating in sports, however, they cannot fully participate or prepare for the various sport codes as the school does not have a usable field. 

The learners are very passionate about sports and their dream is to one day be able to participate in all sports codes and have a nice and safe sports ground to use for practice. They are prepared to do whatever it takes to make their dreams a reality. 30  learners will be running the Two Oceans Marathon virtual 5,6 km challenge on the 23rd of April to raise funds for the upgrade of their school sports ground.

Tafelsig Primary School

Tafelsig Primary School Logo

Tafelsig Primary School is situated in Olifantshoek Street, Tafelsig, Mitchell's Plain. The school is a dual-medium school starting from Grade R to Grade 7 with a total number of 1200 learners.

The area is notoriously known for gangsterism with a level of unemployment and drug dealing.

We are a no-fee school due to the high rate of unemployment, parents could not afford the school fees. Learners get all their stationery, textbooks, and notebooks from the school. The teachers have to cover all books as some of the parents cannot even buy cello tape or plastic cover for the book. We also have a number of learners who depend on the school for their meal of the day.

The school has no active sport codes due to a lack of practice fields for athletes we have to ask neighboring schools to assist with their facilities.
